Ever since the iPhone and Ipod touch arrived the mobile and handheld gaming market took a huge jump. Both independent and established companies benefit from producing aps on the Apple marketplace, and the business is just as profitable as producing games on platforms such as the Nintendo DS or Playstation Portable. There is no doubt that the Apple market place is more accessible to indie developers than other handheld systems, and thus emerging companies are beginning to reap the benefits.
